Lincoln chapel becomes first in the county to offer same-sex marriage

A chapel within the city has become the first venue in the whole of Lincolnshire, to be able to carry out the marriages of same-sex couples.

The licence, which was issued by the local registry office, came just days after Ireland voted to support same-sex marriage in a landmark referendum.

The Lincoln Unitarian chapel on the corner of Monson Street and the High Street will now offer couples of the same gender the chance to get married in a religious ceremony and setting.

A vote by all of the trustees of the local Unitarian church secured their application for the licence.

The first marriages are likely to take place next year.
